The house band for the 21st century


What is the rake?


The Rake is the house band for the 21st century. We provide world class musicianship, arranging and years of recording experience on a budget to suit musicians who would normally be confined to their bedroom or project studio.


Let's face it, getting reliable and talented musicians into a professional studio is expensive and time consuming. Previously, paying for musicians, producers, audio engineers and studio time has been something reserved for those on a label budget.


The Rake is your one-stop shop for all these services – we keep everything in-house. You only pay for the session musicians, leaving the rest to us. The end result is a highly-finished professional recording without the astronomical cost and logistical headaches.
